Got this on a Voucher for £15 per person. Lovely hour with owls, flying them and holding them and then a nice afternoon tea, not luxury end, but nice. Is a lovely day out for any owl lover. Also included access to all of the birds of prey area to see all of the owls and other birds. They all... More

Enjoyed the birds and the animals and staff welcoming, however the place needs money spending on it and looks generally run down. Toilets were disgusting!

We spent our time with Kyle and James who were fantastic, they clearly loved their jobs and really cared about the birds. We got to hold a lot of birds which was fantastic - I thought it was only going to be about 2 or 3 but it was a lot more. Can't recommend the place enough.

My wife and I visited the centre today on a Groupon deal, we had a great time. The two girls that conducted our flight demonstrations and holding sessions were very knowledgeable and answered any questions asked. We would recommend this venue experience to anyone, young or old. After our experience we were cold so we went to the tea room... More

Following a visit earlier in the year, my wife booked me on to the ultimate hawking day, where you go off hunting as our ancestors did in medieval times. Following instructions on how to handle the hawks, which was fun on it's own, we then proceeded to walk across the fields and through copses whilst being closely followed by five... More

Knowledgeable, pleasant staff. Animals all appeared happy and well kept. Will definitely be returning. Total jewel in Bedfordshire's crown! Do keep an eye out for the entrance, no brown 'tourist' signage and worth the search!

My wife bought the 3 hour Bird of Prey experience, and it was fantastic! It's not every day of the week that you have an Eagle or Eagle Owl on your fist, or get a Barn Owl to fly to you. If you're looking for something for The Person Who Has Everything, this has to be at the top of... More
